[Taxacom] Now 2 species/genera in Placozoa...

I can address this question.  When a duplicate record is discovered in ZooBank, it is merged with the correct record, and all the records linked to the duplicate get transferred to the correct.  I think that an error of this sort should not be regarded as a failure to indicate an intended archive, during the period of time when the record was linked to the duplicate journal record.  But I suppose one could argue that perspective.

Also, I should point out that in ZooBank, either the work itself (e.g., article) or the parent work (e.g., Journal) can have the archive indicated.  So just because a particular journal does not have an indicated archive doesn't mean a given article within that journal doesn't have an archive indicated directly.  This has happened a few times, where an author of a paper in a journal that does not include an indicated archive has instead asserted the intention of archive the article directly (e.g., in Zenodo or Internet Arcive).

Aloha,
Rich
